With its jagged cliffs, rocky coves and the sloping foothills of Mount Teide that descend dramatically into the vast “aguas” of the Atlantic Ocean, the northern coastline of Tenerife is a sight to behold. Expansive and breathtaking vistas like these, however, cannot be appreciated from just any vantagepoint. Before even arrivng at Jardin de la Paz, one knows one is in for something special. Stepping through the main gate into the most impressive, multi-terraced sub-tropical gardens, where the air is filled with birdsong and the soothing sound of waves crashing 280 metres below, it is as if time stands still.

Originally three sprawling independent villas, the German owners – he a builder and she a designer (does a better combination exist?) – decided to combine their talents to create this splendid crossover between Hotel and self-catering apartments: an oceanside oasis that offers the best of both worlds. A maze of stone pathways leads from the reception area (where the friendliest of welcomes awaits) down to several secluded garden terraces dotted around the property. Soak in that glorious Canarian sunshine and take in those panoramic views next to either of the two heated swimming pools – splendid!

The Hotel comprises of three large detached villas, now divided amongst Studios, 1 and 2-Bedroom Apartments, 2-Bedroom Semi-Detached Villas and one 2-Bedroom Villa with additional Studio that makes it one enormous villa! Ranging from 55m2 to a staggering 220m2, they are the perfect size for a relaxing holiday whether à deux, en famille or with a group of friends. All feature at least one private outdoor area, whether it be a terrace, roof terrace or garden from which to revel in the surroundings. Sublime sea views can be appreciated from each. One of the 1-Bedroom Apartments, a favourite amongst the honeymooners and understandably so, boasts an outdoor Jacuzzi under a small pavillion that will give any romantic the goosebumps (it did me)! Great care and attention has been taken in creating a harmonious balance between light and space without foresaking comfort. White marble, wicker and glass furnishings are all complemented by calming pastel colours that seem to go in hand with the tropical feel of the Hotel.

Each studio, apartment or villa is equipped with either a kitchenette or full kitchen, telephone, satellite TV, stereo (CDs are availble to borrow), central heating, fireplace (in some) full en-suitebath or shower room (or both!), bathrobes, hair dryers and beach towels. Internet access is also available in the rooms, and there is also an internet station for communal use. On arrival guests will find complementary wine, freshly cut flowers, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and a little treat to satisfy the sweet tooth - all lovely extra little touches.

Baskets of fresh fruit mark the entrance to a small yet cheerful breakfast room, each table topped with something exotic from the garden (Birds of Paradise were the “pick” of the day when I was there). As each apartment and villa has its own self-catering facilities, breakfasts are "optional" and are not included in the nightly price; kindly inform the reception staff the day before if you would like breakfast for the following day. Lunches and dinners are not served, but there is a very good restaurant just an 8-minute walk from the Hotel, and another 3 or 4 within a short driving distance that are recommended. Reception is manned until 6:00pm, after which the caring staff are only a phone call away.

Massages and beauty treatments can be arranged by appointment in their wellness room, as can the services of a hairdresser. Golfers you will be pleased to know that there is a course just 15 minutes away by car where guests of the Hotel receive a disounted rate on green fees. A number of walking routes are nearby and beaches are within easy driving distance.

An ideal Hotel if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing Canarian holiday in a stunning tropical oceanside setting. Highly recommended for winter sun seakers and honeymooners alike!
